I’ve been running around like a headless chicken since I got back from Spain. I’ve had meetings, guests, parties, flights to London, no sleep and loads to do at home. The upshot is that I now have a throat that has swollen to the size of a grapefruit and my cheeks are on fire. What annoys me is that I have a load to do at the office and I have a perfect “no sick day” record. I had plans to clear out my wardrobe for the charity shop, was going to go for a run, clean out the fridge, do laundry, read the rest of my book and work on the next chapter of my book. Now, it would appear that all I have the energy to do is play online poker, watch old movies in my pajamas and sip on lemon and honey whist shivering under a quilt…Boo!
Everyone has a ritual when they’re feeling ill. What do you do? Write a short piece about illness. Here are some ideas:
1. The Big Meeting
2. The Field Trip
3. Fevered Dreams
